Only Fineness Can Create Things - Zhongyan Co., Ltd. Successfully Extruded 3D Printing Filaments of PEEK Material

"3D printing technology is gradually becoming the darling of the industrial and scientific circles, and it will extend its tentacles to all aspects of human social life. With the continuous progress and maturity of 3D printing technology, 3D printing is also spreading from industrial manufacturing applications to life applications such as biomedicine."

"As the basis of 3D printing technology, 3D printing materials, to a certain extent, determine whether 3D printing can have a wider application. At present, the international mainstream 3D printing materials mainly include engineering plastics, photosensitive resins, rubber materials, metal materials and ceramic materials."

"Zhongyan Co., Ltd. and foreign well-known manufacturers successfully developed PEEK 3D printing filaments"

"Until now, the high melting point of specialty engineering plastics such as polyetheretherketone (PEEK) has been a problem in the 3D printing industry, making them unusable for FDM 3D printers whose heating end temperatures are typically over 200 degrees."

"After long-term research and development and a large number of experimental data, PEEK raw materials are made into filaments that can be used in 3D printing technology by using a special process. For 3D printing, the fineness of the material will directly determine the quality of the printed product, and the new process means higher precision."

"The application of PEEK in 3D printing is currently limited to selective laser sintering (SLS) technology because PEEK has a very high melting point, which can reach 343 degrees Celsius. In the SLS process, a layer of PEEK powder is first deposited on the printing bed, and then the powder in the designated area is irradiated and melted by a laser, and then a layer of powder is laid, and so on is repeated until an object is formed, which requires the use of 3D printing technology. PEEK materials need to have high purity and uniformity."

"In fact, polyetheretherketone (PEEK) in special engineering plastics can help 3D printing achieve a higher quality due to its excellent mechanical properties, corrosion resistance, wear resistance, insulation and radiation resistance. , stable and more durable, will become the preferred material to replace metal and ceramics."
